Ouzinkie is a town of 200 residents, located on Spruce Island in the Kodiak Archipelago of Alaska. The village is about 11 miles by air from the city of Kodiak, and is accessible only by air or water. The peaceful little community of Ouzinkie sits on the southwest shore of Spruce Island, which is separated from Kodiak Island by the Ouzinkie Narrows. It's a rural village, which gives visitors a glimpse of the "real Alaska," Ouzinkie is an old town, first settled in the early 1800s by the Russian American Company as a retirement community. Prior to that, it was the ancient homeland of the indigenous Alutiiq people, who have continuously occupied the Kodiak Archipelago for thousands of years. Today, Ouzinkie is known for its' sport fishing opportunities, including salmon, halibut, herring and clams. Attractions in the village include the Nativity of Our Lord, a Russian Orthodox Church, which is a National Historical Landmark, built in 1898. Also, Monk's Lagoon, on the east side of the island, is sacred ground of the first canonized saint, Saint Herman, of the Russian Orthodox Church in North America. A network of wooden boardwalks provides a great way to explore the island, and charter fishing and sightseeing excursions are also available in the village. While hiking or boating, visitors are often treated to the vaporous spouts from whales in the waters of Marmot Bay.
